Sabres look for third straight win

Buffalo (33-25-7) at Ottawa (24-29-10), 7:00 p.m. EST

OTTAWA (Ticker) -- The Buffalo Sabres aim for their third

straight victory when they visit the Ottawa Senators on Saturday

in a battle of Eastern Conference foes.

Tim Connolly scored a pair of goals and set up two others and

Patrick Lalime made 29 saves as

the Sabres posted a 5-1 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on

Friday.

Defenseman Andrej Sekera recorded a goal and an assist and Jason

Pominville and Drew Stafford netted power-play tallies for

Buffalo, which has won two in a row after suffering a three-game

losing streak.

Connolly has registered five points since signing a two-year

contract extension Wednesday with the Sabres, who have outscored

opponents, 10-2, in their last two contests.

Ottawa snapped a three-game skid with a 4-2 win over the

Edmonton Oilers on Thursday.

The Senators, who are 14-12-6 at home, have surrendered 12 goals

in their last three games.
